New Professional On-Ear DJ Headphones From Pioneer DJ
Following the launch of Pioneer DJ’s HDJ-X10, HDJ-X7 and HDJ-X5 professional over-ear DJ headphone models in autumn 2017, the company is now releasing the new HDJ-S7 professional on-ear DJ headphones. The new model offers outstanding audio quality, superior durability and improved functionality for comfortable DJing.
Available in black or white, the HDJ-S7 headphones are the world’s first on-ear DJ headphones to feature 40-mm HD (high definition) drivers. This ensures the clear sound separation needed for monitoring during mixes, from rich and powerful bass to clear mid-to-high frequencies. The bass reflex chamber in the upper housing also ensures excellent bass response and sound insulation.
The new model features a swivel mechanism, a flexible headband and a smaller on-ear can, which is preferred by some DJs – so you can comfortably use the HDJ-S7 for every style of DJ monitoring. To help you find the perfect fit, the HDJ-S7 headphones feature a flexible, durable headband. Passing stringent tests, including opening and closing 20,000 times, they’re built to withstand intense use.
Designed and built to be highly robust, they’ve also cleared the US Military Standard MIL-STD-810G Shock test, as well as Pioneer DJ’s stringent in-house durability tests. When developing any new product Pioneer DJ create numerous prototypes, each time with improvements based on the feedback of highly respected international DJs who test the equipment. Using this feedback, and the results of the Pioneer DJ team’s analysis of many different styles of monitoring, they have made sure the HDJ-S7 headphones are comfortable to use for any monitoring style, especially when hanging them on your neck with the swivel angle fixed to 45 degrees forwards. What’s more, the outside of the housing is textured for enhanced grip, so you can quickly grab it and start listening.
The HDJ-S7 headphones come with two detachable cables: a 1.2m coiled cable (approximately 3.0m when extended) and a 1.6m straight cable. An L-type mini-jack prevents the connection from being knocked or accidentally disconnected during performances, even in cramped booths. Meanwhile, the independent ground wire in the 4-core twisted-structure cable provides superior left and right channel separation, improving sound quality.
When you’re travelling to gigs, you can be confident your HDJ-S7 headphones will be well protected in the included compact carry case. Made from strong materials to protect your headphones from bumps and knocks in transit, the case has pockets for storing accessories such as USB devices and SD cards.
The HDJ-S7 headphones will be available from mid-May 2018 at an SRP of £179 including VAT with a 2-year warranty included as standard.
